Powered by OrCAD Capture, the world's most popular schematic software


OrCAD® Capture is the most widely used schematic design solution for the creation and documentation of electrical circuits. Coupled with the optional OrCAD CIS (component information system) product for component data management, along with highly integrated flows supporting the engineering process, OrCAD Capture is the most powerful design environment for taking today’s product creation from concept to production.

OrCAD Capture + Options

Ease of Use & Productivity

Speed your way through tedious or complex design tasks with extensive schematic entry capabilities that enhance usability and boost productivity

Integrated Design Flows

Analyze your designs to meet project goals and achieve first-pass success with signal integrity, analog/mixed-signal, and constraint development flows

Multiple PCB Tool Support

Make use of multiple CAD netlist interfaces to extend OrCAD Capture into multi-vendor flows allowing you to standardize on a common front-end solution

Open Architecture Platform

Custom tailor your OrCAD environment to enhance and extend it with the ability to create custom features, solutions, and flows

Powerful Schematic Entry

Streamline the creation of your more complex schematic designs with hierarchical, reuse, and variant design capabilities
